Gaze not into the abyss lest you accidentally write a book

Elizabeth Sandifer

Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    I don't have anything substantive to add really, but I do have a question: have you altered your writing style on the last few Albion entries? I'm finding much more approachable than previously. Of course that could be that we're on Moore rather than Morrison.

    You aren't receiving sufficient response to this project, I fear.

    Still, I find it the most worthwhile project you do and appreciate it. I hope that the long-term view — when it reaches completion in book-form — will bear that out.

    The fifth-generation Martian on the cover of 2000 AD Prog 11 is not “the villain from that week’s Dan Dare”. He is the ship commander who is selflessly sacrificing himself by taking his ship into the nearest sun, dragging that week’s villain and the villain’s massed starfleet behind him. Basically, doing Dan Dare’s job for him that week, in saving the universe from its latest scourge.

    The dubious and opportunistic claim made in the pages of 2000 AD, that the inspiration for the first Nemesis story was a particular pop smash of the day, gave Kevin O’Neill some chagrin (he has stated) as in truth he always liked listening to Pink Floyd whilst drawing his comic strips.
